i was there, this is my favorite show ever. took several friends, none of them got on the bus, after the show one of them told me they liked the dead studio versions better...some folks, they just refuse to see the light

Subject: Feel Like a Shakedown
Ahhh.. One of my favorite shows, along with the night before, 10-11-84. The opener of Feel like a Stranger is IMHO one of the best ever. Jerry was having a lot of fun with this one. If you listen carefully at the beginning, you will hear some friendly banter between Weir and Garcia - After the line "... So let's get on with the show..." Bob calls out to Jerry, "How about now?" to which Jerry replies, "Let's Go!" If it weren't for the words, you might think this was Shakedown Street from the previous night. Thanks to the tapers once again! Cheers

Subject: Indian Summer
This is a great sounding recording of a great show. Invariably those who were there will list this as a top 10, and probably top 5 favorite. Although the setlist doesn't exactly jump out at you, consider this: this was the only "jack a roe" the dead played during a three year stretch, it was the only "on the road again" they played in all of '84, it was the only music and the only dew played on the east coast tour that fall; also it was the first time ever that the dead played a "playin reprise" without a "playin" preceding it. And last but not least, the encore was one of just three times that the dead played good lovin as an encore during the 80s. There was something special in the air, and after the beautiful indian summer day that found its way to northern maine that autumn afternoon, the show was a perfect ending to a perfect day.
The quality, again, of this recording is exceptional - there was a copy making its way around for years of good quality but with a strange buzzing throughout the first half of the second set - that does not appear on this version, and for an audience recording each instrument is clearly heard - kudos to the taper! And many thanks!

Subject: Like a Gym
These shows had such a private
&personal feel.I remember it like a Gym with wooden floors lotsa room and close to home.Heads descended on the town freaking everyone out! Stayed at the HoJos throwin fire crackers at the business men walkin by.We had to usually travel to see em so this was a treat.It was harvest time so I had this huge bud off the top the size of my forearm flashing it to other heads on the Maine turnpike and eatin local shrooms. Great list both nights."Roses" was sweet and Jerry had to work for it at this small venue. They couldn't really blast you they had to do some almost acoustic playin. Peggy O grabbed my attention the 1st night..Great to hear this show and go back! Sounds great to me compared to some of the tapes I had kickin around my car at the time.I would have gone straight for this one!

Subject: Naks
Don't knock the Naks! I'd argue that the mic's DO matter, and that the Nak 100s (or 300s for that matter), DO sound great...particularly in larger-sized venues when the shotgun caps can do their thing. Having used both Schoeps of all sorts (solid state and tubes) and Naks over the years, the Nak 100s+cp4 will get you 90% of the way to the performance of Schoeps cmc641's (the hyper cards), at less than 1/10th of the price (schoeps mk4 cardiods vs. the nak CP1 cards isn't as close in small venues, but the naks still hold their own). Yes, the Schoeps are better, but the Naks have made many an enjoyable recording...and THAT's what it's all about!

this is such an example. enjoy!

Subject: 5 big stars!
I give out a lot of 5 stars, mainly because I don't bother reviewing crappy sounding sources. IMO, this is (as of now) _THE_ aud source for this show. Sounds better than the Rolfe source, imo. Beautiful, sweet-spot recording! Just goes to show the mics used mean little - it's all about the mic's location!
